ST. LOUIS -- Brenden Morrow doesn't sugar coat it. If you're searching for a sniper, the kind of cold blooded finisher kids pick as their video game favorite because he scores all willy-nilly, you probably aren't spending much time checking out the St. Louis Blues. "We've known all along we probably don't have that superstar talent," the forward said Saturday night. Instead Blues coach Ken Hitchcock and his players have been preaching a score by committee approach. And plenty of skeptical folks have said 'Yeah, sure.' It sounds like something a team that can't score says, right? But what if it really works? "Anyone can be the hero any given night," Morrow said. "Tonight, we put six or seven in." Rewind. "Tonight we put six or seven in." Yes, the Blues scored so often Saturday Morrow, who got in on the fun, had a little trouble remembering just how many pucks hit the back of the net.St. Louis beat the Florida Panthers 7-0, for those keeping rack. A game that was gridlocked at 1-0 in the Blues favor for more than half an hour turned a corner and never looked back. Morrow scored, followed by Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Derek Roy, Alexander Steen and Patrick Berglund. Oh, and don't forget Ryan Reaves, the Blues' enforcer, who scored before he left the ice early for punching Panthers wing Scottie Upshaw in the face. "We played the right way," Hitchcock said. "We got settled in. We were a little all over the map at the start, caught in the track meet. But once we settled in in the second period, I thought we played the right way, played the way we had to play to beat this team." The route comes two days after the Blues opened the season with a 4-2 win over the Nashville Predators. Those goals came thanks to David Backes, Vladimir Sobotka, and Steen. Add it all up and the Blues have netted 11 goals by 10 different players in two games. Steen is the only guy who has scored twice. Both opponents have swapped goalies mid game with hopes of slowing the Blues' offense. "That makes it hard to defend and compete against when we've got all cylinders pumping," Morrow said.
